Glasgow Blessings

Sister Laurentia Carroll OP


Can each of us a blessing be I ask?

Do we recognise the shape it takes?

Or do we let it pass?


How blessed have other people been

Because of me?

Or do I look the other way

And envy those I see?


What shape a blessing

What form it takes?

It’s the little things they say

Like a smile, a look,or effort made.


Bless me, take my hands

Let them be

Blessings that I’ve hidden

Even from me.


I love. Therefore, a blessing be

To others, free.

Goodness, that radiates from me

To be a blessing just for thee.

A Blessing
